Malta is perhaps better known for its Neolithic temples and tourist sights. In the work of Malta-born artist Jean Busuttil Zaleski (...) we see an engagement with the islands goodness myth and the deification of a female form what is both a symbol of fertility and a veneration of the limestone creations dating back to the earliest-known Mediterranean cultures..
